The Whisky Maker's Cut expression from Glenrothes' Soleo Collection is completely matured in first-fill sherry seasoned casks, resulting in punchy notes of orange, cinnamon and dried fruit. The whole range is named after the process of sun-drying grapes in preparation for sherry production, hence the particularly heavy focus on sherry throughout the series.
Nose: Orange oil and blackberry jam, with drying oak in the background.
Palate: Juicy sherry, crunchy brown sugar, a touch of boozy red wine, macadamia nuts.
Finish: Sweet with chocolate and dried fruit
